Identification. Plants green to brown, irregularly (bi)pinnate branched. Hemiphyll entire associated with a lobule. Leaves subimbricate to imbricate, orbicular, slightly convex, margins entire, dorsal base auriculate, apex rounded, slightly plane; median cells isodiametric, trigones nodulose. Lobules erect, subparallel to the stem, galeate with an oblong laminal portion, rarely laminate, beak long, not decurrent. Stylus filiform, 2‒3 cells in a row, 1‒2 cell wide at base. Underleaves imbricate, orbicular, 1/6 bifid, margins entire, recurved, apex rounded, base rounded to auriculate, plane to recurved, insertion line curved.

Widely distributed in Brazil, this species is recognized by lobules galeate with a long beak and an oblong laminal portion (as large as the galeate portion) and perianth 4-keeled.
